Kerry Katona engaged to Ryan Mahoney as couple enjoy romantic Spanish getaway

Kerry Katona is engaged to her partner Ryan Mahoney, with the pair enjoying a romantic holiday to Spain.

The 39-year-old has been dating personal trainer Ryan for about two years, with the pair clearly going strong.

Ryan is thought to have asked for Kerry’s kids’ blessing, with Molly, 18, Lilly, 17, Heidi, 13, Max, 12, and six-year-old DJ, giving him the go-ahead to propose during their holiday in Spain.

A source told OK! online: ‘Ryan is really close to all of Kerry’s kids so he made sure he involved them before asking for Kerry’s hand in marriage.

‘He got Kerry a massive two carat diamond ring and showed it to the girls first and they all loved it.’

They added: ‘They were all together celebrating Kerry’s 40th birthday early and Ryan popped the question outside on their villa’s balcony.

‘Kerry couldn’t believe it and for once was genuinely speechless when Ryan asked her.’

Photos obtained by the site also show Ryan getting down on one knee to pop the question, with Kerry sobbing with happiness.

The star looked stunning, donning a red dress and yellow heels for the occasion and, of course, her huge diamond ring.

She could also be seen clutching roses as she posed with her beau in front of the gorgeous scenery.

Just last month, the couple were spotted looking loved-up as they enjoyed a house-hunting trip, and Kerry has had nothing but praise for her partner in the past.

Earlier this year, she told Closer magazine: ‘Ryan is unlike anyone I’ve ever dated before. He’s very quiet, very shy, very private – the complete opposite to me.

‘He’s the first person I’ve ever dated who actually has his own job. And he’s so hands-on with the kids, doing the school runs when I can’t. The kids adore him. It’s finally a normal relationship and it took me a while to get used to that. I’m extremely happy!’

Katona was married to Westlife star Brian McFadden in 1998, and the couple welcomed their first child Molly, followed by Lilly-Sue before splitting five years later.

She then married Mark Croft, and the pair share daughter Heidi and son Max. They split in 2010, and four years later Katona got back together with George Kay, with whom she had Dylan-Jorge.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Kerry’s reps for comment.
